The program that started the Mindful revolution…
Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) is an evidence-based, practical and empowering program that brings the principles of mindfulness meditation into everyday life. You will learn specific skills and practices to build your innate capacity to break cycles of anxiety, stress, unhappiness and other 'life-aches'.
This course provides an in-depth approach to shifting your habitual thinking mind into a new and freer framework.
Imagine how it would feel to come home to the wisdom of your body’s senses, and to arrive in this moment more peacefully, calmly and confidently than you may have thought possible.
With mindfulness meditation practices and gentle movement as the core of this life-enhancing program, you will learn simple and highly effective ways to take better care of yourself towards the living of a healthier, more skilfully responsive life.
This is the same program as televised on Catalyst on ABC television – there are many Mindfulness courses and classes available out there these days, but this is the ridgy-didge AND evidence-based researched Mindfulness program that started the modern Mindfulness ball rolling…
I have taught this program all through 2020 online, using the very easy platform of Zoom, which allows participants to join from the comfort of their own home with very little additional requirements other than a good computer/internet connection, and a private space to join the weekly classes. The course format works well in this environment with the added bonus of bringing participants together live and in-person for our full-day experience.

A bit about me – Cherise Vallet
I came to Australia from Canada in 1989, on a personal adventure quest. Along the way, some difficult life circumstances led me to taking up a regular practice of mindfulness and yoga in 1998. Truly, this ongoing practice has sustained me through thick and thin over the intervening years.
The internal changes I’ve experienced were (and continue to be) compelling, and have led me to teacher training in yoga and its therapeutic application; and to Mindfulness Meditation training. Specifically the Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction Program, which has a very particular, evidence-based curriculum.
I am a member of Meditation Australia, as well as a registered teacher of the Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction Course, through Mindfulness Training Institute of Australia. I am also a senior registered teacher with Yoga Australia. I specialise in teaching meditation techniques that support calm, resilience, and healthy choices in living. These include Mindfulness Meditation practices, specific breathing techniques, and therapeutic yoga.
What Others Are Saying...
"The Mindfulness based stress reduction (MBSR) course opened a portable toolkit that I never fully understood I (already) had. Cherise’s broad experience and inclusive approach combining simple yoga and guided meditation gives life and context to the structured elements of the course. The insights shared and establishment of regular practice has been both challenging and profoundly rewarding.
It’s a toolkit for life."
"I really loved the MBSR course, and Cherise was a fantastic facilitator. Her calm, warm and thoughtful approach was really appreciated. She was able to lead the group through not only the mindfulness practices, but the theory and group conversations. I would definitely recommend MBSR to anyone who is interested, has the opportunity and wants to invest in themselves."
